Sad news from the world of voice actors.

It has been a few years since actor Scott McNeil has attended a convention, so it made perfect sense for Botcon 2023 to give him his own panel where fans could ask him questions directly. McNeil brought his patented brand of talent and humor together for a unique and fun panel.
Hasbro's Transformers display at San Diego Comic-Con 2023 isn't just about current and upcoming items. With Rise of the Beasts in theaters, Hasbro decided to pay homage to Beast Wars and dug into the archives to display some classic Beast Wars Transformers toys!
